Top 7 of 77

Coming soon!

In the meantime, mail me your "top 7" — the only rule is there's no rule. You could send me your top 7 places you like to get grilled cheese sandwiches if you want, except that I would call you a blasphemer, because there is only one place to get grilled cheese sandwiches.

Anyway, send me your "top 7" and I will have it up here before you can finish your next grilled cheese, give or take a sandwich or two.

        Hello Michelle,

        My husband’s grandfather was also a gunner on the Spirit of 77. HIs name was Ralph E Partelow does this ring any bells? Records show that there were 3 or 4 planes registered under this name, we are trying to find the correct plane and crew.

    My wife’s uncle was a mechanic for the B-24 Liberator named
    “Spirit of ’77”. The aircraft was in the 446th Bomb Group, 705 Bomb Squadron.
    US Army Air Force (8th Air Force) Bungay, England.
    Serial number 42 – 7607

    My wife’s uncle named the plane and did the art work.

    I would like to know the name of your uncle the pilot.

    The plane went down over liberated France on Jan. 1, 1945

    If you would like to know more send e-mail
    directly to Dennis Kender
